St. Patrick's Day Party

My friend Angela and I threw a St. Patty's Day Party on Saturday and we had a blast. She asked me to create a poster with a leprechaun on it so we could play a variation of pin the tail on the donkey. So I did a quick google image search to see what leprechauns looked like and this is what came out:
Pin the Shamrock on the Leprechaun
I think my nerd was showing at the party, with my knowledge of celtic music and counting to ten in gaelic. I was obsessed in high school with my irish heritage. I listened to the music, read the folk tales, learned some Irish language phrases on Microsoft Encarta and fantasized about red headed boys. Haha! 

The party was a success and the shamrock game was a hit! I knew I got that degree in art for a reason!

That sounds like a great party! I am interested in learning more about the folk tales. Do you think you could share a few?

Thanks guys!

You know Adam... I can't really remember any! I need to get myself to the library pronto. Its been too long. Maybe i could play around with turning them into a comic to be more engaging! Like that gal who does (a nordic tale)
